Rooster Painting...Complete!!

Well here he is...finished him up last week and took a couple of days off to celebrate and chill out for the long weekend!! I used several layers of paint mixed with Golden Hard Molding Paste to allow me to sand the piece and create a unique background revealing interesting colors and patterns.

Started a new piece today and will be using some of the same techniques.  It too will have typography in the background but I plan adding paper to create additional texture and pattern.  The Golden Molding Paste takes a while to cure so I usually work on more that one piece at a time.

I have always admired Jasper Johns use of stencils...think I'm inspired!
